– Hormone therapy and egg cell collection from egg donors:
The egg donor receives hormone treatment to allow more eggs to mature than in a natural cycle.
– The eggs are fertilized in the laboratory
Either the removed eggs are fertilized with the sperm of the recipient’s partner or with donor sperm. This can be done through IVF and / or ICSI (by arrangement with the doctor)
– Possible freezing
Some of the fertilized eggs can be frozen after a few days so that they can be used in a freezing cycle (FER).
– Hormone therapy and egg transfer or egg transfer in the natural cycle
The egg recipient is treated with hormones (estrogen and progesterone) before the transfer so that her uterine lining is optimally built up and is ready for the eggs to nestle as well as possible after insertion.
